What is the difference between a cryptocurrency, a digital currency, and a virtual currency?


I'm wondering what are the differences between the three terms.

I have the impression that they are used somewhat interchangeably, with people talking about Bitcoin being the most popular "virtual currency" etc.

Some people say virtual currency is the subset of digital currency, while others argue conversely.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you.
